Similar housing size, schools & services.

Mates Elem. school includes our neighborhood in it’s priority selection. It used to the the Meadows Elem. school boundary.
Almost all the homes were built between 1960-1970. Many homes are the same floor plans. The Kevington community share a HOA and all view lots. Some of the best views in the whole city!

Single family homes in fire prone area, as well as college community apartments on south near CLU, plus senior housing to southeast and on west side of CLU

Parks, open space, low impact industry, neighborhood developments are cohesive, schools, retail including supermarkets.

The described neighborhoods generally backup to open space. There is a mix of single family homes, townhomes, condos, and apartments.
Our concern is protecting the neighborhoods from commercial encroachment where the land is zoned residential. The protection in keeping this neighborhood residential that preserves the culture of what Thousand Oaks is known for. Where to raise our families in safety. Why we bought or rent near the open space and mountains. Keeping the green zones. Excluding the building of more than 2 story commercial structures to maintain the views for the City.

Availability of organic food choices in markets and restaurants with reasonable prices for families and seniors. Organic foods can contribute to better health for everyone.

What is the rationale for your community of interest to be used in this districting? Please describe how the issues before the City Council have a unique impact on your group.2023-06-15T21:26:24+00:00

Traffic & access to basic shopping & services. That being grocery stores & restaurants, medical services.

The whole neighborhood is east of Erbes and should not be split up. We all share the same issues school, crime, wild life etc. and we should share the same CC representative. We are different then the community to the west – Conejo Oaks which has very large lots. To the north, Scenic Park which are a different product, different schools etc. And to the south, (south of Hillcrest) which is mixed uses, i.e. apartments, large homes, rental homes.

See above and include areas west of Moorpark Road and extending to Wildwood to encompass entire college oriented residential community extending to Conejo Ridge and Conejo Creek area

Geography and common interests.

Housing is a key issue for the City. Land zoning is key in housing. Allowing commercial development to encroach into residential land should not be how we develop and plan the City. There needs to be designated areas for commercial use and designated areas for livings. Maintaining these boundaries maintains the culture of the city and assures those that live in the residential areas that they can depend on the fact that commercial development won’t invade into the neighborhoods.

Most growing families and seniors value maintaining good health in my community of interest. With cost of living increases, organic foods costs should be kept reasonable.
